Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Automatic Chronograph "Bumblebee" Men's Watch 26176FO.OO.D101CR.02

Once mostly known only among fine watch collectors, the name “Audemars Piguet” is now familiar to the population at large, thanks in part to many well-known celebrities and notable taste makers who wear the brand. However familiar the brand has become, Audemars Piguet remains a proud family-run operation and has been continually ran by the same founding families since its beginnings in 1875. The tradition of outstanding quality and craftsmanship of Audemars Piguet timepieces have also remained unchanged.

For your consideration is a pre-owned in excellent to near mint condition and proper operational order, unbelievably beautiful, complex, innovative and profound – Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph Bumblebee Chronograph watch "H" series (Ref. # 26176FO.OO.D101CR.02).

And though the company has remained loyal to its historic roots, Audemars Piguet keeps a keen eye toward the future of innovation. A fine example is the Royal Oak Offshore collection – namely, the ultra-sporty Bumblebee series. This luxury chronograph features a case crafted of forged carbon, a material Audemars Piguet has experimented with and perfected for use in fine watchmaking since the 1980s. The hexagon-shaped smooth ceramic bezel is secured by eight highly polished screws. Under the glare-proof, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal is a black ceramic face featuring a black “waffled” guilloche pattern. Bold Arabic numerals, the inner tachymeter scale bezel and the seconds hand are in vivid yellow color, giving the watch it’s sporty, “bumble-bee” appearance. The baton-shaped hour and minute hands are silvered with luminous insets.

Chronograph functions include a 30-minute counter at the 9 o'clock position, a 12-hour counter at the 6 o'clock position and a small seconds dial at the 12 o'clock position. At the 3 o'clock position is a magnified date window. The case is secured to your wrist by a handsome horn back strap made of padded crocodile leather and yellow stitching, completed with titanium deployant buckle.

Standout feature(s): The forged carbon case is not only extremely durable and lightweight – each case is truly one of a kind. When the carbon fibers are poured into the mold, the fibers disperse in a random manner. Furthermore, when the material is heated and compressed, the carbon evolves in an unpredictable manner, resulting in a marbled effect that is highly prized; ceramic bezel.
